Global Warming Has NOT Affected The Abyss: Nasa reveals cold waters of Earth's deep ocean have not warmed since 2005

REMEMBER BACK IN 2008, WHEN OBAMA SAID HE COULD "SLOW THE RISE OF THE OCEAN AND HEAL THE PLANET"?  SOARING RHETORIC THAT GOT HIS ELECTED PRESIDENT.  BUT NOW WE FIND OUT HE CAN'T EVEN CREATE JOBS!  HE NO LONGER SEEKS TO UNITE AMERICANS BUT IS TRYING TO DIVIDE US JUST TO GAIN RE-ELECTION.  SO OF THE FOOLS THAT BROUGHT THE SNAKE OIL BACK IN 2008, HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT AND NOVEMBER 6, SHOULD BE A DAY OF RECKONING FOR THIS MAN.  A DAY TO REMEMBER!

The cold waters of Earth's deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, according to a new Nasa study. Researchers say that while the find does not throw suspicion on global warming, it is a mystery.
They say it cold be related to the fact global warming appears to have slowed in recent years.
Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably.  Study co…

Just Say NO to a Carbon Tax?

Image
I am against instituting a carbon tax, but my reasons are rather different from the conventional ones.  I see three major problems with any proposed carbon tax: It irrationally discriminates against some forms of energy and subsidizes others.It ignores the considerable benefits of atmospheric carbon dioxide in promoting the growth of plants, advancing agriculture, and lowering the cost of food for a growing world population. Focusing on a carbon tax emphasizes the idea that Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant -- a claim that is rapidly becoming scientifically unacceptable.
Assuming we can maintain a revenue-neutral tax stream, I favor an energy tax (BTU tax) over a carbon tax, and will explain why.

Consumption taxes
Many politicians have favored a consumption tax from time to time.  A good example was presidential candidate Herman Cain, who proposed a consumption tax when he ran for the Republican nomination in 2012.  Economists who favor such a tax often insist that it must be revenue-neutral,…

NASA: The Deep Ocean Hasn’t Warmed Since 2005 (but we’re all gonna die)

Image
While still claiming that the results do not cast doubt on climate change, a new NASA press release says that the global oceans below 2,000 meters depth haven’t warmed since 2005. This is the period that we have had the deep oceans reasonably well sampled with thousands of globally-distributed Argo floats.


The thing that annoys me about such press releases is the obligatory disclaimer (no doubt crafted so that “skeptics” don’t have a field day with the press release):
“Study coauthor Josh Willis of JPL said these findings do not throw suspicion on climate change itself.”
Such statements have the usual vagueness that allows the True Believers to interpret it any way they want.
Does it mean: “It doesn’t throw suspicion on Al Gore’s impending thermogeddon”? Or does it mean: “It doesn’t throw suspicion on the fact that climate has always changed, and always will change, with or without the help of humans”? Or maybe something in between?
You see, as long as the IPCC gets away with basing a…

It’s Official: Global Warming ‘Pause’ or Standstill extends to over 18 years – ‘Pause’ has ‘endured for a little over half the satellite temperature record’

Global Temperature Update It’s official: no global warming for 18 years 1 month
By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley
The RSS monthly satellite global temperature anomaly for September 2014 is in, and the Great Pause is now two months longer than it was last month. Would this year’s el Niño bite soon enough to stop the psychologically-significant 18-year threshold from being crossed? The official answer is No.
Globally, September was scarcely warmer than August, which was itself some distance below the 18-year trend-line. Therefore, taking the least-squares linear-regression trend on the RSS satellite monthly global mean surface temperature anomalies, there has now been no global warming for 18 years 1 month.


Dr Benny Peiser, our good friend at the Global Warming Policy Foundation in the UK, had anticipated the official crossing of the 18-year threshold by a day or two with an interesting note circulated to supporters on the ever-lengthening period without any global warming, and featuri…

More Global Warming Junk Science? reduces male births? or is abortions, Why?

ANNUAL ABORTION STATISTICSIn 2011, approximately 1.06 million abortions took place in the U.S., down from an estimated 1.21 million abortions in 2008, 1.29 million in 2002, 1.31 million in 2000 and 1.36 million in 1996. From 1973 through 2011, nearly 53 million legal abortions have occurred in the U.S. (AGI).Based on available state-level data, an estimated 1.04 million abortions took place in 2012—down from an estimated 1.16 million abortions in 2009 and 1.13 million abortions in 2010. In 2011, the highest number of reported abortions occurred in California (181,730), New York (138,370) and Florida (84,990); the fewest occurred in Wyoming (120), South Dakota (600) and North Dakota(1,250) (AGI).The 2011 abortion rates by state ranged from a low of 3.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 inMississippi (Wyoming had too few abortions for reliable tabulation) to a high of 28.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 in New York (AGI).http://www.abort73.com/abortion_facts/us_abortion_statis…
